General advice




The phrase "Travel broadens the mind and loosens the bowels." is apt but it should also be remembered that less common serious diseases do occur, which can completely ruin your travellers holiday and even be life threatening. As part of the travel consultation You should

  • Inform them of the dangers

  • Advise on preventative measures

  • To be prepared for illness

  • To take written information with them

  • The importance of follow up if illness occurs

It is unlikely that the traveller will be able to fully digest all the information that you give them, so providing perspective is important in trying to achieve compliance.

However, ultimately your travellers health is their own responsibility.
